A report says bank depositors in England are withdrawing cash in lieu of negative interest rates that would charge to keep money in bank accounts. To which Americans are asking what are bank depositors?

A study says being overweight makes the brain “10 years older.” Not from being obese, but from identifying with all the other people it sees around during every meal at Golden Corral, HomeTown Buffet and Ponderosa Steakhouse.

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has been assigned to be a public defender because of a high case load and cuts in funding. Which would be interesting if this were happening in Illinois as the person the governor there would most likely be defending would be themselves.

Experts say there are seven infections possible to be caught from swimming in the Rio Olympic’s dirty water. Which is exactly the same as the odds quoted to all the cast members from living in the home together during the filming of “Jersey Shore.”

Brett Favre says he plans to “wing it” during his Hall of Fame acceptance speech. Apparently he figures if he runs into any trouble during the presentation, just like with his career he can always just start over.

A report says the U.S. has reached an average Internet speed of more than 50 Mbps for the first time ever, which is 1,000 times faster than dialup. Which is bad news for men still watching porn on AOL as that means they are 1,000 times more likely to be caught in the act by their wife, coworkers or boss.

Megyn Kelly’s memoirs are due to be published in November. The bad part is that a preliminary copy was sent to Fox News and Roger Ailes was caught trying to look under it’s jacket.

Ford is recalling more than 800,000 vehicles, including their Escape SUV  to repair faulty door latches that can pop open while driving. Which apparently is how the SUV got the name “Escape.”

A study says by age 18 most kids ADHD is gone. If that is true, then why do so many people who are of voting age always make such inattentive choices at the polls?

A report says one in four seniors has some form of disability. For most of them, it’s called being a senior.

Caitlyn Jenner says she considered suicide while going through her gender transition. Mostly from staying inside to avoid the paparazzi and being stuck hanging out with the Kardashian girls, Kris Jenner and Kanye West.

A study says that sharks seem less creepy to people in films when shown while more peppy music is playing. Which means more people would still be able to go into the water if instead of using a 4/4 string ostinato in D Minor, the theme of “Jaws would have been Benny Hill’s “Yakkity Sax.”

Apple has gotten the OK from the federal government to start selling electricity. Which means if they price it the same way they do their iPhones, the only danger of being shocked will be when customers open their monthly energy bill.

Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim’s learning app apprende.org already has 500,000 world wide users. Although Donald Trump claims that Trump University had double that number of users. And that is just the number of people who have signed on to the lawsuit demanding their money back claiming they were defrauded.

The Emerald Ash Borer beetle is destroying millions of trees which could mean an end to ash baseball bats. The good news is that having bats with holes in the wood at least gives the Atlanta Braves hitters an excuse as to why they keep missing the ball.

A study says the odds of life evolving through the universe are 1,000 times greater far into the future than they are now. Which in other words is the result of researchers figuring out a way of getting funding for a study that no one will ever be able to disprove.

Pokemon Go has arrived in Rio just in time for the Olympic Games. The sad part is that Pikachu has already been sent back to Japan for failing a mandatory drug test.

That’s it for now, Oh Faithful Readers! It is Friday, which means the weekend is upon us. For many of you that is a break from work, responsibilities and mostly from reading the jokes on this blog. Don’t worry, I’ll have them up again on Monday which will give you something to do when you get bored of playing Pokemon Go or watching porn at work. It’s nice to have an alternative. It’s also nice when I see that all of you take the time to remember to make sure to keep on sending the love!
